For some of us, high school was not very long ago. And while we may cringe at some of our fashion choices – Abercrombie jeans and polo shirts – one thing will always strike us as funny: the resolutions we made to never wear any one of many arbitrary fashion faux-pas. One of those things was black and brown.
Having grown out of my frayed denim mini skirts and just recently stumbling on the most perfect brown jacket, I thought to myself, “Well why can’t I wear this with black?” After all, the most poignant lesson I have learned on my journey through fashion is that rules do not exist. I grabbed my black leggings and wedges, put on a cream colored dress and vintage vest, and slipped my arms through my new brown jacket.
Though I did not feel any particular rush of accomplishment from staring at my reflection in the mirror, I was pleasantly surprised to see how good this once unimaginable pairing really looked. I’m not the only one. I trolled through our style galleries to find my favorite black and brown outfits.
What are some of the things you never thought you’d wear, but now love?
